Trust makes cash contribution to Soccer for the Nations

NASHVILLE — The Nashville Soccer Supporters Trust has local soccer and community welfare at the heart of its mission, and in line with these core beliefs, the Trust presented Soccer for the Nations co-director Valair Shabilla with $200 check at the most recent board meeting.

Soccer for the Nations, a charitable arm of the Nashville Roadies supporters group, aims to provide the opportunity to play soccer for the children of Nashville without regard to the child’s socioeconomic background. The operation of the organization was assumed by the Roadies last year, and this spring marks their first season since taking over.

“We are thankful for the Trust’s donation and recognition of our organization,” Shabilla said. “This type of support shows how strong and united our community is, and it helps us achieve our goal of making soccer accessible to everyone.”

“There are few areas where we can make a more positive impact on our community than in supporting efforts to increase opportunities to help our children learn the benefits of hard work, personal responsibility and teamwork,” explained Trust president David Wasiolek. “The soccer field is a perfect classroom to pass on these time-honored tools in a fun environment. The Trust applauds the efforts and welcomes the chance to support organizations like Soccer for the Nations that work tirelessly to increase those opportunities”

The Roadies are a founding member of the Trust, and earlier this year, the Nashville soccer community came together to participate in their fundraising event for Soccer for the Nations, generating $1,300. For more on Soccer for the Nations, click here.
